The Rotary Club of Berrima District once again took to Sydney Harbour to take part in the Yacht Ballet as part of the official Australia Day celebrations. This year we hired three Yachts. We had a total of 53 members and guests with representatives of Berrima, Bowral/Mittagong and Moss Vale Rotary Clubs. We had a wonderful day and extend our sincere thanks to Allen Cupit and Ace Internet Services for their generous sponsorship and Bridget Cosyn for her marvelous catering of the event. A thank you also to Berrima Buslines for transport to and from Rushcutters Bay.
On the 24th November & 13th December Richard Krohn and Derek White, with a little help from Lyndall and Aiden McGrath, cleaned and re-stained the deck at Rotary House, Triple Care Farm, Robertson. The hot weather on the 13th made for perfect drying weather and two coats of stain were applied in record time. Around 400 people turned up for the Graduation Day at Triple Care Farm on the 15th December. There were approximately 30 “graduates” (those who had achieved agreed goals during their stay at the Farm) in attendance out of the 52 who had achieved this status over the past year. These included a very talented young girl who sang a couple of self composed songs for the assembled masses.
It was a very wet day so they did well to get through the proceedings (including a BBQ lunch) without mishap. The planned tours of the new rehab centre and the Farm facilities were cancelled on OH&S grounds however.
